Apigo® D 40T

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by API
Apigo® D 40T is a thermoplastic olefin elastomer (TPO) based compound containing raw materials from renewable sources. Is suitable for processing by injection molding, extrusion, extrusion-blow molding and over-molding. Is an excellent alternative to flexible PVC for halogen-free products. Possesses rigidity lower than conventional polypropylene and allows co-molding to polyolifinic substrate. Shows physical and mechanical properties comparable to conventional TPOs derived from fossil fuels. Allows reduction of CO2 emissions and greenhouse gases thereby saving fossil resources. Exhibits lightness, elasticity, good resistance to low temperatures, good range of hardness, excellent brightness, excellent transparency, non-stress whitening, elastic modulus, chemical resistance to acids and bases, high processability, short molding cycles and easy recycling (100%). Used in building and construction applications, home furnishings, automotive, packaging, electrical domestic appliances, thermo-hydro sanitary, toys, sports footwear (ski boots, inline skates and ice-skates), household products and personal care applications. Complies with European 10/2011/EC standard and FDA.
